yah, those were taken at that outing with you all, when I stupidly used large apertures, so DOF was very shallow.Originally posted by megaweb
the dragonfly shots are very soft ...
I like the bee shot the best !
overall , nice shots !
I think us macro nuts have already overcome our fear subconsciously, overwhelmed by our love for photography. See the spider (some as big as your palm) shots, bee shots, dragonfly shots posted by many forumners here, they are usually taken at typical distances of 10cm away.Originally posted by Ling Nightsky
by the way, you're not scared of the bees stinging you?
yah, about 10-15cm away, or else can't get this kind of magnification. The focal lengths for these shots are somewhere near 380mm.Originally posted by Cool_VIR
Do u really stand very close to the insect u are taking....?
Or u use a long focal length lens with macro to take the shot...?
I'm using a G2 nw. Can it take the shot u taken...?
